Results below the jump, y'all!It was a hectic sprint today and, at one point, Tyler Farrar's leadout train seemed confused as Murilo Fischer was about 5 bike lengths in front of the peleton. Unfortunately, the unorthodox tactics didn't work out for Garmin-Barracuda as well as they did for Sky, whose Edvald Boasson Hagen took a convincing win.
Your Top Six:
- Edvald Boasson Hagen (Sky)
- Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol)
- Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale)
- Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Barracuda)
- Manuel Belletti (AG2R La Mondiale
- Matthew Goss (Green Edge)
Up next? 252 kilometers of climby awesomeness, including a short but sharp finishing climb with an average gradient of 12%. If that doesn't sound unpleasant enough, it has a maximum gradient of 18%. Bring your climber legs, dudes, cause this is gonna hurt!
